Of Peace

An offer of peace
Through an extended hand
A grip of handshake
An agreement of man

A moment of peace
Through a sunsets glow
In stilling the mind
And letting things go

A day of peace
Through a stroll, just to be
In calming the heart
Found in natures beauty

Our eternal peace
Through Jesus we find
Blessed with a prayer
Of heart, soul and mind

Gift of Peace

In trials of life
Seems worries never cease
Our great desires’
For the gift of peace

We seek it in moments
Through view of beauty
A pause of reflection
Of tranquility

We go on vacations
Or just watch TV
Of reading a book
A walk to be free

These just are a taste
And all fade away
For our souls’ great need
Is for peace that will stay

Come listen to Jesus
With Word He does say
I give you my peace
Of the eternal way

War and Peace

A time of war
Fear flowing through
Confusion here
What can we do?

It seems hopeless
Tensions increase
Where do we turn
To bring us peace?

Come chosen ones
And hear the call
Our hands to raise
On knees to fall

With heart of faith
Full confidence
A time of prayer
And penitence

And even pray
So faithfully
Christ’s love to turn
Our enemy

A prayer to help
The suffering
As body, one
Compassion, bring

For such a time
As this, we shine
The power of
Our God, divine

Peace and Love

Worries, worries, fear and sin
Help me Lord, come dwell within

Into, into My embrace
Come to find only grace

Fears, fears, drift away
My Beloved let us pray

Settle, settle, now the soul
Let My Spirit, take control

Go, go, let it go
Love complete, I bestow

Rest, rest, here profess
Peace to know, you’re fully blessed

Flow, flow, let it grow
Love and peace, here to know

You Can Steal

You can steal my happiness
But you can’t steal my joy

You can take my trust away
But faith you can’t destroy

You can take my job today
But not my purpose be

You can make me miserable
But God loves you and me

Even if it’s comes to death
And you kill my body

Still I know that I can rest
In life eternally

My words are bold and I will fail
Through struggles to endure

Let me dwell upon this truth
Gods’ faith in me secure

One Word This Day

A blanket, a presence
A grace flowing through
A comfort of knowing
This day covers you

One of beyond
Of promise instilled
Spirit of gifting
May you be filled

Of fragrance, surrounding
Inside and out
A sense of the soul
A feeling devout

All worries and fears
This day to cease
The Word that is spoken
Let it be, one of peace

Vessel of Peace

In peace of the morning
Of offering prayer
Within God’s creation
No evils found here

No one to slander
Control or to shove
No heart of judgement
All one of God’s love

Evil is spread
Born through man’s heart
Prayer, our vaccine
God’s love to impart

Receiving God’s love
To begin our day
A vessel of peace
To bless in His way

His Name is George

A knee to the neck
A knee to the neck
The officer put
A knee to his neck

I cannot breathe
I cannot breathe
His soul of pleading
I need to breathe

A basic right
A basic right
Everyone has
The right to breathe

He took it away
He took it away
The public protector
Took his right away

Precious is life
Precious is life
Only for God
Is the right to life

Injustice no more
Injustice no more
Let all people say
Injustice no more

The power of peace
The power of peace
Let us rise together
With the power of peace

Through Peace

With a little more grace
And little more space
We’ll slow this virus down

With a little more care
And little more prayer
We’ll help those all around

We’ll give our thanks
To all the ranks
In service here this day

We’ll hope there be
Scientists see
A cure will come our way

We’ll turn above
To God of love
And know us He adores

We’ll place our hope
And know we’ll cope
Through peace that He outpours

It’s Cool

In troubling times
Bless our soul, be calm
Singing joyfully
This simple little psalm

Know in this truth
Of peace beyond to be
For if I die, that’s cool
For Jesus I will see

In my time that’s blessed
A practice to observe
For if I live, that’s cool
For Jesus I will serve

In this moment now
In Presence that surrounds
For You are here, it’s cool
And Your love abounds
